Georgetown is a historic city located in the southeastern part of the state of South Carolina. It is the county seat of Georgetown County and is situated along the Winyah Bay, which is an inlet off the Atlantic Ocean.

Georgetown is one of the oldest cities in South Carolina, founded in 1729. It has a rich history that is closely tied to the early European settlement of the region and the plantation economy that developed in the 18th and 19th centuries. The city played a significant role in both the American Revolution and the Civil War.


Historically, Georgetown's economy was based on rice and indigo plantations. Later, the city's economy diversified into timber, fishing, and maritime industries. Today, manufacturing, tourism, and the Port of Georgetown contribute significantly to the local economy.


Georgetown boasts a well-preserved historic district with a charming waterfront and a collection of historic homes and buildings. The city is known for its beautiful oak-lined streets, historic architecture, and antebellum mansions.

Kaminski House Museum: A historic house museum showcasing antiques and decorative arts.
